Physician Learning Program and CPCSSN working together to improve practice
We are collaborating with the Physician Learning Program (PLP) to transform practice by providing meaningful information and a venue to facilitate relationships where learning can occur.
The PLP and NAPCReN/CPCSSN held a successful "Focus on Diabetes" workshop on December 2, 2013. All participants gave positive feedback in a post-workshop survey and felt there was value in the project. This workshop was part of the PLP's EMR project and based on the positive response of the participants would welcome a continued partnership with PLP and CPCSSN.
See below some of the comments from physician participants:
"[I gained] a better ability to understand the data from my EMR and take ownership for management of the data to achieve improved patient-centric care delivery.”
"The greatest personal value for me was realizing the potency of being able to directly compare my success in achieving targets for specific groups within my practice with the successes of other individual physicians. The ability to talk openly and directly, one-on-one to try and get a better sense of what I could possibly do differently to do better for my patients was motivating.”
“I learned about CPCSSN [Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network] and how they can mine your data.”
“The most significant value that I took away from participating… was the opportunity to meet with other physicians utilizing different EMRs and compare some of the challenges that they face trying to reliably capture that data that we are trying to look at."
